What You Can Expect
On the east end of the island lies Hanauma Bay, the remnants of a volcano crater that is now a marine sanctuary and popular snorkel location. You'll then enjoy aerial views of the Halona Blowhole, Sandy Beach, Makapuu Point and its lighthouse, followed by the colorful Sea Life Park.
The powdery white sands of Waimanalo Beach provide a scenic backdrop as you continue on to the gorgeous coral formations of Kaeohe Bay. View the Chinaman's Hat before heading to "Jurassic Park" valley, where a dozen major motion pictures have been filmed.
A highlight of this 60-minute Oahu Helicopter Tour is a flyover Sacred Falls, a shear waterfall with a 1,000-foot (300-meter) drop. The central plain reveals the world's largest agricultural maze, housed at the Dole Pineapple Plantation.
You'll then soar over the Polynesian Cultural Center, one of the island's most popular attractions. From the air you'll also see the Mormon Temple in Laie, aquaculture farms, Kahuku point and Turtle Bay.
Your 60-minute Oahu Helicopter Tour concludes with a panoramic view of Pearl Harbor and the Arizona Memorial.
Great time was had for the entire family.
We did a doors off ride and it was great. The pilot was very knowledgeable about all the history on the island.
Amazzzzing... A "must do" while in Honolulu... Very professionnal, you'll discover what can't be seen from ground... simply fantastic ! Great staff, superb installations....
Best part of our vacation. To be able to see Oahu from a different perspective. Also get to see things you can't see from the ground.
Loved the helicopter ride around Oahu. My tour went around the western side of Diamond Head and would have liked to have gone around the coastal side. While the sacred falls must the the highlight (since it was mentioned in the title, it was disappointing to have only circled around twice to be able to see them from afar. It would have been nice to have been able to hover for a minute or so to get good pictures with our cameras. Overall, I enjoyed the ride and was able to get a good overview of the island.
Flight was great, scenery magnifiicent, gave a birds eye view of the island, with a bit of local knowledge thrown in. Jeff, ex viet vet chopper pilot was good
I guess I was spoiled after my first helicopter tour two months prior in San Francisco. Everything about that tour was perfect: seemingly brand new helicopter with air-conditioning and luxurious leather bucket seats, an excellent pilot who knew exactly when and how much to talk, beautiful weather, and amazing views. So, was a little disappointed when I arrived at the office and saw that the helicopter was quite smaller and older than I expected. I was also a little put off when I was asked for my signed paper voucher when the e-mail I recieved from Viator cleraly stated the an electronic voucher was all that was needed. The misunderstanding was quickly resolved by forwarding the e-mail to the tour opertor, but they need to get this straightened out with Viator. Anyway, our tour left on time and I was enjoying flying over the airport and downtown Honolulu when the pilot annouced that one of his gauges was reading incorrectly and we would have to return to the airport. I had no problem with that; better to err on the side of caution in that situation. After working on the helicopter for about 40 minutes, we were able to resume our tour. My biggest complaint was that I only understood about half of what the pilot was saying. I don't think it was due to his accent. It just sounded like he was mumbling. Obviously, this distracted quite a bit from my enjoyment of the tour, as did the fact that he talked incessantly. My other complaint is that we didn't get as close to some of the sights as I expected. It seemed that we were miles from Diamond Head and Sacred Falls. Perhaps there are rules about how close you can get (especially at the Pearl Harbor sites), but I was expecting to virtual feel the spray from the Falls and all I got was a distant view. Overall, for the relatively high cost of the tour, I was very underwhelmed.
